Federated Media Deal

ReadWriteWeb covers the WordPress.com / Federated Media deal which will give high-end bloggers access to run advertising from FM, which is significantly higher quality than alternatives like Google Adsense, which has been declining in quality and is no longer a great choice for bloggers. Proud to be part of the empowerment of the Independent Web, which is the dark matter of the internet.

Not sure I fully understand the implications of this, but it’s interesting.

I’m pretty sure I’m not one, but curious how you define “high-end blogger.”

I think I’ve heard you say you don’t really want a lot of ads on WP.com blogs. On the other hand, I’m in a situation where I’m considering going self-hosted in order to try to sell a few ads.

Can you say more about the future of this kind of “opt-in” ad program (as ReadWriteWeb called it)?

Thanks for a great platform.

This is a very positive step. But I feel that WP.com should go one step ahead and replicate the Squidoo model for its publishers. At least the ones who are signed up for this program. What they are doing there is very impressive but they are building content from the ground up. WP.com is much more suited as it already has a huge user-base.
